Shoku Tsuburaya, a Social Butterfly. August 18th, 2018.

6-1-2016 SocialButterflyPersona

A student that is a Social Butterfly.

Social Butterfly is one of the many personas that appear in Yandere Simulator.

If an NPC with the Social Butterfly persona witnesses Ayano Aishi commit murder, they'll be shocked for a few seconds. Ayano can use this time to kill them before they run. If Ayano wears the Cute Kitty Panties, any student witnessing her commit the crime will be shocked for seven seconds instead. Currently, all Social Butterflies are incapable of self-defense.

After their shock has passed, they will run to the nearest crowd and call the police. If they see Ayano, they will scream. This will attract the attention of any nearby students in range, who will see Ayano's bloodied and/or insane state. This makes murdering the witness much harder as the player's reputation will drop massively and because of the amount of witnesses to the murder. If the Social Butterfly witnesses another murder, they will curl up into a ball and rock back and forth, not moving until the day ends, they are killed, or the police arrive.

The next day, they will refuse to talk to the player, saying that they know what Ayano has done and threatening to tell other students about it. Each day they are left alive will damage Ayano's reputation by ten points.

If Ayano tries to take a picture of Social Butterflies, they will happily pose for the camera for a picture. If the player is in the Photography Club, they will instead stand still.
